    session timeout with php_value session.gc_maxlifetime

    After my users log in, the $_SESSION["logged_in"] expires after inactivity of the default 24 mins (1440 secs) and logs them out.

    I want to extend this to 2 hours (7200 secs), but adding the below into my .htaccess is not doing it.

    Code:
    php_value session.gc_maxlifetime 7200
    How can I extend the session timeout to 7200 with confidence that it is kicking in?
    I want to be able to do it in the .htaccess as I do not want to change it server wide in my php.ini

    Thanks in advance.

    I once heard that you can have individual php.ini files in seperate directories. You might want to consider that option.
    My helpful sig is on vacation trying to loose some weight. It got a bit fat and caused a few problems but it will be back at some point!
